Video: Mariyady, the priest investigating the corporate takeover of indigenous peoples forests in Borneo "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In the village of Tewah, in the heart of Indonesian Borneo, stands a wooden church named Immanuel. When the church was founded by German missionaries more than a century ago, Tewah would have been a very different place, surrounded by impenetrable rainforest, and accessible only via the Kahayan, a giant river flowing down from the mountains in the centre of the island. Today, Tewah is connected to surrounding villages by deeply rutted roads that cut through increasingly fragmented forests. Its narrow streets are dotted with shops that buy and sell gold, dredged up from the riverbeds by young indigenous men. The current custodian of the church is Mariyady, a charismatic priest with a young family and a Cheshire Cat smile. We heard about Mariyady in the nearby village of Sare Rangan, whose residents were navigating the complexities of a rapidly changing life, after discovering that their land had been licensed to a plantation firm to grow oil palms on a massive scale. The license was one of five issued by then district chief Hambit Bintih in 2012. These licenses were the subject of a 16-month investigation by Mongabay and The Gecko Project, in which we revealed how Hambit had used land deals to bankroll a corrupt election campaign in the district of Gunung Mas. The scheme worked like this: Hambit used his protg, Cornelis Nalau Antun, to set up a series of shell companies. Then Hambit issued the shell companies with permits for vast areas of land encompassing dozens of

Poachers blamed in second Sumatran elephant death this year "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

BANDA ACEH, Indonesia Authorities in Indonesia have blamed poachers for the death of an elephant found with one of its tusks hacked off, in one of the worlds most biodiverse and threatened habitats. The 27-year-old male Sumatran elephant (Elephas maximus sumatranus), named Bunta, had since 2016 been regularly trained and employed by forest rangers in Aceh province as part of a unit to ward off wild elephants encroaching on farms and villages. His body was found June 9 by forest rangers inside the Leuser Ecosystem, one of Indonesias last large tracts of intact rainforest, which is home to four of the most iconic and critically endangered species on Earth: the Sumatran elephant, tiger (Panthera tigris sondaica), rhino (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis) and orangutan (Pongo abelii). Citing damage to the elephants digestive tract, and traces from fruit found near the carcass, officials from the Aceh conservation agency, or BKSDA, say it was likely that Bunta was poisoned a common tactic used by poachers and farmers in the region. After the elephant died, one of its tusks was taken by slicing open its cheek, Wahyu Kuncoro, of the East Aceh district police, told reporters a day after the body was found. Bunta, pictured here with a ranger, was one of several elephants trained to take part in patrols to shoo wild elephants away from farms and villages, as part of a forest protection program in eastern Aceh province.

Die ZTE-Affre hat China gezeigt, wie dringend sie sich von amikanischem Knowhow unabhngig machen mssen.

Chinas technology boom, it turns out, has been largely built on top of Western technology.

The ZTE incident, as it is called in China, may be the countrys Sputnik moment. Like the United States in 1957, watching helplessly as the Soviet Union launched the first human-made satellite, many people in China now see how far the country still has to go.

We realized, said Dong Jielin, an adjunct professor at the Research Center for Technological Innovation at Tsinghua University in Beijing, that Chinas prosperity was built on sand.

Und das ist keine schne Einsicht.
